2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown color with a fluffy dark cream colored head. Nutty/earthy/malty aroma with some sourdough undertones. Dry caramel with a murmur of acidic earthy malt. Dry dark malt finish. Nothing I can get thrilled about.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep dark brown-amber, creamy smooth head. Smooth palate, though not as creamy as expected from the appearance. A mediocre flavor, suggesting tea and dishwater. Mild aroma with only a hint of grape or other fruitiness (cherry?). Really very mediocre. (on tap, Hobgoblin, Oxford)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint aroma, some caramel sweetness and toasty malt. Medium red-amber color, persistent white head and lace. Malty, fruity, faintly bittersweet flavor profile, some touches of floral hop bitterness towards the finish. Light bodied, effervescent palate. Quenching.

Not impressed at all. Well, ok appearance, red and fine head. Not much aroma and the flavor has an uncharming hint of cola.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty brown colour, perhaps with a reddish glow. Fine sweet aroma of toffee. Nice malty flavour with a somewhat smokey and pleasantly bitter finish. However, a bit waterish mouthfeel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep reddish- brown in color, small white head that doesn't last long, light sweet roasty nutty-caremel aroma. Some roasted malty nutty flavors, light to medium body, light and smooth mouthfeel, a bit watery leaves a somewhat dirty aftertaste, not all that great.

This Irish Ale poured a medium tan head of fine-small bubbles. There was some lacing present. The body was amber colored. The aroma was slightly sweet and the taste was fairly smooth.

This brew pours a medium head of finely sized off white bubbles that left a good lacing and a transparent brown body. It has a malt hop aroma with slightly bitter fizzy start and a smooth finish. It has flavors of roasted malt and caramel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The lable indicates malty, but I was expecting more. Like the Red Rocket ale of California... Nice and drinkable, with a malty note and hint of peat? Smooth and very much like an english bitter.
